Gjergji, or George in English, is a 28-year-old single man who needs your financial help to buy an engine for his transportation minivan. He is a very hard worker as others in the village say. He does fishing and transports people to earn a living.

He lives in a little village situated on the shores of Ohrid Lake. People here do mostly fishing of small wild fish the size of sardines, but with strong needles and scales like a fish -- they’re called ‘cironka’ by the locals, who cook them in an oven with squeezed lemon, black pepper, bay leaves, olive oil, garlic and salt. People here also have several orchards with cherries, apples and nuts, and they sell large quantities of these fruits. As for agricultural land, they don’t have much to plant for selling fresh produce, but farm produce for their own personal use.
